I’m Victoria Goldman and my blog is Off-the-Shelf Books (http://off-the-shelfbooks.blogspot.co.uk). I review mainly crime fiction, though I do occasionally delve into other genres. I’m a freelance health journalist/editor and I’m also writing crime fiction.
I certainly loved this serial killer book. It’s so different to other crime novels out there. I’m now getting all excited again as the second book, The Collector, is being published in January 2018 and there are already some ARCs for bloggers floating around. Rattle has a very chilling plot, with children disappearing and a serial killer on the loose. The Collector is the best fictional serial killer I’m come across for a long time.
Fiona Cummins is an amazing writer. Her vivid descriptions made my skin tingle and her plot was gripping and intriguing. The book was really well researched too, with lots of medical background, which I found fascinating due to my job. This is a crime thriller with unbelievable layering and depth. I visited the Hunterian Museum, which is mentioned in the book, earlier this year.
